Johns Hopkins is a community committed to diversity and inclusion to achieve and grow excellence. We firmly believe that we can best promote excellence by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff. We also believe in creating a climate of respect that supports their success.
This climate is critical to achieve the best research, scholarship, teaching, health care, and other strategic goals of our University. These values are recognized and supported by Johns Hopkins leadership at all levels. Further, we recognize that the responsibility for excellence, diversity, and inclusion lies with all of us. That means leadership, administration, faculty, staff, and students. Read the Johns Hopkins Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion.
As the first American research university, Johns Hopkins University has a long history of training the best and brightest scholars, scientists, and innovators. These people impact their local and global communities. New students are about to embark on a remarkable intellectual and social experience.
The number of incoming Johns Hopkins undergraduate students that identify as underrepresented minorities (URM)has increased from 12 to 23 percent since 2009. Once students arrive on campus, they can take part in various programs to find their place. These programs help them adjust to college life, develop leadership skills, network with other first-generation students or underrepresented students in medical professions.
Many of these programs are offered through the Homewood Centers for Community, Diversity & Inclusion, especially the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Student Disability Services, and the Center for Student Success.
